    I believe Amazon.com ship DVDs with the 'worldmail shipping' option from Holland thereby avoiding HMC. Perhaps this is going to change?
    Confucius, any views/news?

    Amazon to close service centre in The Hague
    SEATTLE: Amazon.com's European unit will close a customer service centre in The Hague, Netherlands, that employs 240 people as part of its parent company's plan to make money by the end of 2001.

    The Seattle-based Internet retailing giant said Friday the centre's 240 employees will have the option of moving to service centres in Regensberg, Germany, or Slough, England.

    The company recently announced it would close a Seattle customer service centre and a McDonough, Georgia, distribution centre, and lay off 1,300 people as part of a similar restructuring in the United States.

    Amazon, which sells everything from books to tools online, has grown steadily since opening its virtual doors in 1995, but has never turned a profit.

    Amazon.com's European unit employs about 1,800 workers. The company also recently opened a Japanese unit. (AP)
